Key benefits of the Ras al Khaimah Offshore company:

  • Ras al Khaimah (RAK) is one of the 7 emirates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

  • UAE is a tax-free country. There are no taxes, be it income tax, corporate tax, withholding tax, value-added tax (VAT) etc. You will keep all the fruit of your labour.

  • Strict confidentiality, as the list of directors, shareholders, company secretaries not published anywhere in the public domain. Enjoy an extra layer of confidentiality by appointing nominee directors if you wish.

  • Zero reporting and publishing of annual accounts required. Instead of setting aside time for costly annual audits, you can focus on business expansion and wealth accumulation.

  • Enjoy similar benefits under UAE laws, yet the incorporation fee is much lower compared to other emirates such as Abu Dhabi, Dubai or Fujairah.

  • A robust international banking system with multiple currency financial services is present in UAE, making it more convenient compared to some other jurisdictions. Your funds are always within reach.

  • As UAE is a highly reputed destination among international investors, owners of RAK companies enjoy easy access to quality banking services in Hong Kong, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg etc.

  • Freezing of accounts is very difficult under RAK laws, hence your assets are way safer here.

  • No requirement for paid up capital or local office. No foreign currency restrictions, full repatriation of profits and capital allowed.
